VANCOUVER -- The B.C. politician who filed a complaint over the handling of the missing women's case says a cloud continues to hang over the Vancouver police department.

Tony Bhullar is unhappy the B.C. Police Commission has decided not to pursue his complaint.

The Surrey-Newton MLA says an investigation is needed to provide and answers and restore public confidence.

But complaints commissioner Don Morrison says an inquiry may interfere with the current police investigation and prosecution.

Members of a joint task force of Vancouver police and RCMP are searching a Port Coquitlam pig farm.

A co-owner of the property, Robert Pickton, is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of two of the missing women.

Critics say police dragged their feet in dealing with the disappearances of 50 women -- mostly prostitutes and drug addicts -- from Vancouver's skid row.

The disappearances stretch back almost 20 years.
